APFOL: November 15-21

Interesting posts and other things that have caught my eye this week. It isn’t actually everything, since I didn’t want to kill myself copy-pasting, so for the entire link collection check out my Delicious page.

And now, I present to you, my readers: Awesome Post Full of Links #12: November 15-21!

It’s been a pretty quiet week, actually, but there’s some very good recommendation lists.

Books in General

Authors & Publishers

  • Brooklyn Arden: On Protests and Publishing
    “But we readers can create positive economic pressure in a way that actually benefits the publishing industry and the authors we support. And that’s by buying books with gay characters — either the book in question if it’s in a Fair, which will prove desire for such books outweighs the repressive effects of the Christianists, or other books in the bookstores, which does the same in the trade.”
  • When will hardcovers be retired? « Follow The Reader
    “I understand the economics of publishing: hardcovers are more profitable. But where is the value to the consumer? How can I, in good conscience, direct any child to purchase the same product in different binding for 3 times more when the reading experience will be exactly the same (maybe better for the softcover if you consider the fold-out insert)?”
